I found my passion for organizing once I discovered some really wonderful benefits. My pre-professional organizer life, I proudly admitted that I “did things my way” believing that being organized seemed stifling and boring. I envisioned the homes of those who considered themselves organized to perpetually look like the “after” of an HGTV home makeover show……although I had never personally met anyone whose home actually looked like that.
I did take notice of those who seemed to have it together achieving super accomplished days. I would notice the mom who was fully dressed, hair done and makeup on while dropping her kids off at school whereas I sat in the safety of my vehicle in the drop-off lane. I didn’t dare leave my vehicle wearing my flannel pajama pants circa 1999, sweatshirt with no bra and eyeglasses from 3 prescriptions ago.
I became intrigued. How’d she do it? I then realized the only difference between she and I was that she planned her day which gave her more time and freedom and my “fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants” attitude was way more stifling and boring than I was willing to admit.
Think about it…..once her kids are dropped off at school, she’s free to go about her day and I am still an hour or two from starting mine.
In a series of life events, I learned a few lessons along the way:
May you find your own wonderful benefits of incorporating a little organization into your life!
